The Temporary COVID-19 Wage Subsidy Scheme (TWSS) ended on 31st August 2020. Therefore, J9 submissions with a pay date after 31st August will be rejected by Revenue. Revenue are hoping to commence the TWSS reconciliation in October. TWSS CSV reconciliation files will be uploaded to Revenue to enable them to reconcile the amount of subsidy paid to the employee against the amount refunded by Revenue.
A new Employment Wage Subsidy Scheme (EWSS) has been introduced and is expected to continue until 31st March 2021. This scheme has now replaced the TWSS from 1st September 2020. Eligible employers will be required to register for the EWSS via ROS. EWSS registrations cannot be backdated. Revenue have confirmed that the EWSS can be claimed in respect of proprietary directors, subject to certain conditions - click here to find out more about EWSS & proprietary directors.

As a result of the recent business closures, many employees have been layed-off. Layoff is a temporary measure, whereby the individual is still an employee of the company but they are not receiving any remuneration for the duration of the layoff. In the current situation, it is hoped that many business will be able to re-engage their staff once the current emergency situation eases. As the COVID-19 restrictions begin to ease, some businesses are now able to re-engage their staff that had previously been placed on layoff.
